The President of the Ghana Football Association, Kwesi Nyantakyi says his outfit is ready to support soccer researchers to undertake ventures that will add to the development of the game.
The Ghana FA capo admits that it’s time his outfit supports researchers in soccer to come up with new ideas and strategies for the development of the local game.
Speaking to the media at the funeral rites of soccer administrator and historian James Oyedeji on Saturday, the CAF Executive Committee member acknowledged the death of the historian as loss to Ghana in particular and Africa as a whole.
“James’ death is a great loss to the football family. We will really miss him. He was a great administrator and an unmatched historian,” Kwesi Nyantakyi said.
“We have very few books on football in this country. Mr. Ken Bediako is one of the very few people to have done that. Uncle James should have been the second to do that but unfortunately, he couldn’t write,” Kwesi added.
“I think we need to encourage people to write. There are a lot of people who have the skill to write but maybe due to lack of funding they are unable to do that.”
He concluded by saying that they will be ready to assist anybody who will shows readiness to take up writing about football in the country.
“I want to use this as a platform to publicly tell anybody who is ready to take up writing about soccer to come forward for us to assist him,” he concluded.
